Staghorn Ferns

Anonymous added on May 25, 2015 | Answered

We have grown staghorn and elkhorn ferns from spores collected from our plants in the nursery. They are in cocofiber in small 2" pots. They look beautiful. Very lovely. They do not get a cluster of roots fast enough. We have grown them in the house in artificial light for 2 years now. They wilt very fast if the medium gets dry. Tell us where we are going wrong and what is the correct method of watering. They are in thermocol boxes the size of seedling trays and covered lightly by plastic sheet that have few holes. Please advise.
